Good news for bees from Aldi – who would have thought?

Marianne Landzettel: From January 1st the German budget supermarket chain Aldi requires its fruit and vegetable growers to no longer use eight pesticides containing neonicotinoids as they are known to be dangerous to bees. OK, there are a few caveats: only in Aldi supermarkets in the south and west of Germany and in all branches in Switzerland can you be sure fruit and veg from German or Swiss growers have been produced without neonics. And potatoes remain exempt. But from aubergines to zucchinis that still leaves a lot of produce that will be grown without danger to bees.
